Bread & Cheese, Benfleet

The Bread & Cheese is located on the main A13 London Road not far from Benfleet and is much improved from previous times. Today it is a very busy pub serving great value food and offering a range of quality drinks. Our daily carvery is very popular which is served alongside our main menu in the good-sized restaurant area. There is also plenty of seating in the bar. Although open plan there is a natural divide between diners and people who simply want a drink and to watch the sport. We also have a private area for parties, meetings and private dining. A more intimate atmosphere is created in the evening by candles on the tables. The beer garden is to the rear of the pub with benches and a patio area covered by a pergola - an attractive area to enjoy a drink or meal in the summer sunshine. Come and see us soon.
